Amazon patent reveals drone surveillance as a service

Amazon.com is exploring using drones not just to deliver packages but also to provide surveillance as a service to its customers. According to the patent granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office, the surveillance function of the drone can be limited through geo-fencing, a technology used to draw a virtual boundary around the property under surveillance.

They'll probably push it on the parents... "Have our drones follow little Johnny home and you're the first person to be notified if he's doing drugs or having unprotected sex!"

So in most of the US people will break out the shotguns to bring down spying drones. In Texas they'll break out the civil war era cannons and make a new sport out of it. I am moving to Texas.

This is a patent bullshittery of the highest order. First it's "we just want to check your house for fires, broken windows, etc", then it's "We're really sorry for that clause that permits law enforcement to view live feeds from the drones", then it's "with millions of drones nationwide, we can improve the delivery time of your product, and the response time of emergency services." next thing you know, it's 2084 and we're all eating shit sandwiches of the variety Big Brother says is okay.
